You sound too nice. No amount of prayer will change our good shepherds. They have hardened their hearts around money.
They despise and deride the faithful who disagree with them. They show contempt for those who tell the truth. They mock those who work hard and are just. If you believe them you will always be disappointed. Call this The Psalm of the Diocese of Buffalo.
True. Money is the name of the game. The "faithful" are the least of their worries. MONEY is their main concern.

We/I have made great progress. However, MONEY is still the issue. I am not willing to wait even one more day. I know I have an advocate. If my advocate is not willing to press the necessary charges against those who withhold what is rightfully mine, I respectfully ask for another advocate. I ask the new advocate to involve the media in this, it is about time.

Those who oppose the DOB on church closings, or anything else, find the local media very accommodating. Their letters to the editor get printed, if they get a small group together a reporter will come over and give generous, favorable coverage.
Most letters to the editor by prolifers do not get printed. If there is a gathering, even a huge gathering of prolifers, the media will either ignore them, give it limited, negative coverage.

Pretty sure this would get more than an 'also ran' buddy.
Great news

Good for the media!

P.S.-- I think the pro-lifers are nutty!

Remember Immaculate Heart of Mary on Edison Street. The parishioners fought to keep the parish pen and even met most of the criteria for so doing. But it was closed anyway. Now most of the parishioners go nowhere, largely due to alienation.

Wasn't that Fr. Richard Augustyn's parish?

Same story for many parishes. Parishioners fought, met criteria, presented documentation, hired canon lawyers. It meant nothing to the DOB. The nun (Reggie) had her mind made up.

There are many assumed reasons why 'his royal highness' had a gag order on this ordeal but the reality is that the victim would NEVER know completely what is/has been done to her. Makes one think it wasn't his first time.
Now that so much has finally been achieved, it appears the nun can remain free as long as she has a job in the diocese (apparently the dob doesn't care if they have convicted criminals on their payroll). Those in the chancery (etc.) who are aiding her in her endeavor risk incarceration/loss of job themselves, I believe. The court has determined that the victim can work for the dob and not have to tolerate her offenders working for the same company.

The nun and her accomplices are preventing the victim from receiving her damages, thus enabling the case to close, the victim to go to work for the dob and the nun to begin her sentence. That is criminal and so are you.

Just a thought: Why are you so willing to aid the nun in this activity? Is it because you were part of the embezzlement along with her? Did you take part in buying up the closed churches along with the nun and are facing jail yourself or if so, and it hasn't been discovered you were part of it, did she tell you that she would keep quiet about it if you would refuse to give the victim her money?

I didn't agree to any 'gag order'. It is inhumane and it is time to lift it. I have enough information to sink this ship and I have an email ready to send to The Buffalo News. If they have somehow been forwarned, I will send it to every news agency I can find an email address (or snail mail) until I get somebody's attention. For the criminals who remain at large, you have gotten on my last nerve. You will suffer the most. Tomorrow is the email due date. Every single person involved in this from the lowliest to the VERY HIGHEST knows I have the goods. You've got until tomorrow. Somebody will have to speak or the mailings begin.

Those who oppose the Pope or bishop for ANY reason will find it easy to get their views in the media. This is not because the media cares about churches - in fact they are opposed to everything St. Ann Church stood for. This is because the media is opposed to the Catholic Faith. When you see the friendly news coverage about heroic parishioners standing up to the DOB, remember that newspaper or TV station supports abortion, opposes the traditional family, opposes the New Testament, opposes everything the real St. Ann, St. Adalbert, St. Mary, St. Catherine, and all the other saints taught in their lifetime. People who want to share the ideals of the real St. Ann, St. Agatha, St. Luke, St. Joachim, etc, can't access the media.
